Eastern Mojave Vegetation Mono Inn, Mono County, California.

Query: G.N.I.S.

The existing Mono Inn restaurant facility structure was built in 1922 to house the workers who were to build a grand resort on the hill above the Lake for the owners of the property, the McPherson family. The financier of the project, William Brandt of Los Angeles, died before the resort construction began. The Inn eventually developed into a motor inn adjacent to Highway 395, remained a favorite destination and popular roadhouse watering hole.

In 1996, the Adams family purchased the property and completed a million dollar renovation of the main building. Today, they presently operate the restaurant seasonally.

Elevation: 0ft, 0m.
